A rematch, fought at no pay, "to atone for an unsatisfactory showing in their bout last week." On site Philadelphia Record report had O'Keefe winning this fight. The Philadelphia Evening Public Ledger called the bout a draw. But a wire report from the AP printed in the Williamsport Gazette had Tendler winning. (Wire reports are not dependable; they were often filed by the manager of one of the fighters, of course in favor of his man.)

The Philadelphia Evening Public Ledger has this bout as an unsatisfactory draw, as neither fighter did anything. According to Paul Zabala, the Public Ledger did call O'Keefe the winner.
